Previously the location of a razed power plant on First Avenue between 35th and 36th Streets, the American Copper Buildings have become a dynamic landmark on Manhattan’s East Side. The two buildings, linked by a sky bridge, offer a residential lifestyle unlike anything the neighborhood previously had to offer.Save this picture!Courtesy of SHoP ArchitectsReaching to 48 and 41 stories respectively, the American Copper Buildings house 761 rental residential apartments – all of which offer condominium quality finishes, custom designs celebrate each unit’s unique features. Further, the units have floor to ceiling windows that boast sweeping views. Whether overlooking the East River, westward towards the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, to the north towards the United Nations headquarters or to the south to One World Trade, views in each cardinal direction are unobstructed and unmatched.Save this picture!Courtesy of SHoP ArchitectsWorking within tight building footprint restrictions, set by an approved ULURP plan, our team explored a variety of twin tower configurations and forms within the zoning-compliant envelope. The resulting massing was of two buildings that lean into one another, connected at their closest point by a skybridge. Community gathering takes place at three levels across the project. At grade, a food market and through-block passageway open to a new public park on the river side of the site. Lounge and amenity spaces for tenants and guests—including the lap pool—are located at the bridge level. And on the roof of the north tower there is a second, infinity-edged pool and a rooftop bar overlooking the entire city from an unobstructed vantage point. Through these strategically located community spaces, SHoP, along with our client and construction manager, JDS Development Group, aspired to create a pair of whose residents will truly feel at home.Save this picture!Courtesy of SHoP ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow less”Post-Digital” Drawing Valorizes the Ordinary and Renders it to Look Like the PastArticlesBAM Ranks the 20 Best Master of Architecture Programs in the World in 2018Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:626 1st Avenue, New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Driving SA software development

first_img30 May 2005The University of the Witwatersrand and the City of Johannesburg, in partnership with government and industry in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector, have launched the Johannesburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE).The centre aims to serve as a “nucleus for software development in South Africa and on the continent”, said Professor Barry Dwolatzky, a director at the centre.The JCSE, he said, would grow South Africa’s capacity to deliver world-class software, develop research and training initiatives to strengthen the local software development industry, and promote best practice in software development within an African context.According to Dwolatsky, international corporations are increasingly outsourcing software development to emerging countries such as South Africa, India, China and Russia, taking advantage of high levels of skills at lower costs.“The SA software development industry has flashes of brilliance and some really notable successes, but it is largely immature, ad hoc, and small-scale”, Dwolatsky said.“It will not be able to compete against other global markets unless something is done now. The government, business – both SMMEs and large corporates – and academic worlds need to get together and get the ball rolling right now.”The centre, established within the university’s School of Electrical and Information Engineering, will offer high-level public lectures, master classes, continuing professional development courses and technology incubation to develop ICT leadership for the country.It will also offer consulting and software certification and accreditation services, and carry out applied research in collaboration with various companies and organisations.“Facilities will also be established, including world-class infrastructure, specialised computer laboratories, a software engineering library and lecture and meeting rooms,” Dwolatzky said.In one of the centre’s first collaborations with business, IBM is to set up a Linux Centre of Competence at the JCSE, installing IBM server equipment worth over R2-million, as well as a large suite of Linux-based software.According to the JCSE, IBM’s Linux centre will provide both a Linux demonstration environment for IBM customers and a powerful research and teaching environment for JCSE students and reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Quora for the Enterprise: Two Contenders

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Tags:#enterprise#Trends klint finley IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts center_img Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Last week we asked whether we needed a Yelp for the enterprise. Ed Borasky suggested that Quora could fill the role of providing crowdsourced reviews of enterprise software vendors., a more business-centric questions and answer site, could possibly do this as well. But what about Quora for the enterprise? As in, an internal questions and answers for work related questions? Quora hasn’t ruled-out doing this itself, but founder Adam D’Angelo says that it would be too much of a distraction for the company to do so anytime soon. In the meantime, two companies offering a Q&A solution for enterprises: MindQuilt and Opzi.Do We Really Need One?There are already plenty of enterprise forums and microblogs, why would we need a dedicated questions and answers site? Furthermore, such a thing would be trivial to implement on SharePoint. And if there were a real demand, it seems like something one of the social media suite vendors like Jive and Socialtext could add pretty quickly. We love best-of-breed solutions, but at what point does something become too niche?The other side of the argument is that a dedicated Q&A format brings a functional structure to a forum or microblog that can encourage adoption and make it easier to solve actual business problems. Rypple is a good example of a company gaining traction by adding some light structure microblogging to create a simple but useful tool.These types of tools may end up finding success through enterprise app markets.OpziOpzi is a service for organizations building internal Q&A sites. It’s currently in private beta. It will use a Yammer-like model: users will sign-up with their company e-mail address and will then be able to ask and answer questions specific to their company. Those that have had an early look say it is very similar to Quora.MindQuiltMindQuilt is already available to the public. It bills itself as a knowledge base focused on routing questions to the appropriate person. It’s available as a standalone SaaS or through the Google Apps Marketplace.Co-Founder Daniel Kim doesn’t see MindQuilt as competing with Opzi. He writes on Quora: “MindQuilt is more concentrated on the routing problem, i.e. if somebody asks a question, how can we find the best person in the Enterprise to best answer it.” However, according to an interview with TechCrunch, Opzi is also looking at the routing problem. MindQuilt co-founder Filippo Diotalevi has some other thoughts on the competition between the two companies on his blog.MindQuilt is applying gamification principles in an attempt to drive adoption, though Kim admits that the gaming piece may end up being a distraction.Kim says most of MindQuilt’s IP is centered around:a) How do you ingest content from multiple placesb) What are the relevant bits (i.e. out of a 25 page document with 10 pages of boilerplate, what are the juicy bits)c) How can we make sure that a topic can be shared (or restricted) from a group of co-workersIt sounds like access control is a priority for MindQuilt. That’s going to be a critical issue for enterprises sharing data across silos.ConclusionThis is still a young category, and there’s a lot of value to be tapped here. We wouldn’t be surprised to see companies like Jive and Yammer adding Q&A features in the near future. But if you want to get started with an internal Quora-like site for your organization today, MindQuilt is already available.Photo by Valerie Everettlast_img read more

Audio Editing Tip: Matching ADR and Location Audio in Post

first_imgKnow How to EQADR Recording and EQ via ECG ProductionsMuch like how cameras all have their own distinct looks to them, microphones all have their own characteristics and sounds. It’s highly unlikely that the mic that’s being used to record your ADR is a perfect match for the mic that you were using on set, so you will notice some differences in audio quality right off the bat.For instance, you may find that your location audio has more high end (treble), while your ADR recording is more bass heavy. This can easily be adjusted and compensated for with a little bit of EQ work, which can go a very long way in helping the different recordings to blend together.Start by getting your basic levels where they need to be so that all of your tracks match at least from a gain standpoint. Then adjust your highs, mids, and lows on both the source audio and the ADR recordings to try to find a good happy middle ground. Once you’ve found the right balance, the majority of the heavy lifting is done. If you’d like a deeper look at EQ basics, check out the post Basic Guide to Understanding EQ over at B&H. It isn’t a software-specific approach to EQ, rather it’s a general look at the science behind the process.Reverb MattersSound Engineer at work via ShutterstockOne of the other critical elements to take into account when dealing with ADR material is the lack of reverb. Assuming you’ve recorded in a professional soundproofed studio, your source ADR tracks will have little to no reverb at all. In contrast, depending on where you shot your original footage — it is very likely to have at least some degree of reverb.Imagine you shot a scene in a cathedral with a huge amount of reverb in it, and then attempted to place in some ADR tracks to replace a few lines. Obviously, the sound quality would be extremely different even if room tone had been added and a proper EQ was completed. Ultimately the difference would probably be a direct result of reverb (or lack thereof).Always be sure to not only apply reverb in your editing system, but also take the time to fine tune it so that it matches with your location audio as closely as possible. Reverb can literally come in all shapes and sizes, so you need to ensure you are taking enough time to not only select the right effect, but also fine-tune the settings if you want to get the most realistic and flawless results.Got any audio editing tips for the community? Share them in the comments below! Mixing and matching ADR with location audio can be very challenging, but these audio editing tips will help you get much better results every time.Top image: man in ADR booth via ShutterstockNobody enjoys having to record ADR. It’s a fairly grueling process that usually occurs at the tail end of a production when you just want to wrap things up and get your project out the door. What’s even more frustrating than having to record it in the first place though, is attempting to match the sound quality with your source/location audio.Capturing location audio via Antuan MejiasImagine a scenario where you’re editing a project that was shot entirely on a busy city street. Most of the location audio sounds solid, but there are a few takes that just aren’t working. Maybe the noise from the street bled through too much on a critical line or there was a technical issue with the mic, ultimately leaving you with the reality that you need to record ADR for a portion of the scene.Once you go back into the studio with your talent and rerecord their dialogue to match with picture, the work has really only begun. It goes without saying that clean, studio recorded audio tracks are going to sound very different from on location recordings, so ultimately you’ll need to take some measures to get the audio to match up.In a best case scenario, you’ll send your edited timeline to a dedicated ProTools artist who will help finesse the audio until it’s perfect. But in some instances, you may very well be left with the task of tweaking the audio yourself, and if that’s the case you should always adhere to these audio editing tips:Remember Why You Recorded Room ToneRecording room tone via Christopher MorrisAssuming you’ve done your job properly on set, you should have room tone recorded for each location you shot at. Room tone of course, is simply a track recording of ambience in your location which can be used during the audio editing process.One of the most critical steps in matching ADR with location audio involves the addition of room tone, which can be an art unto itself. Always ensure that you are not only adding in room tone, but mixing it down so the levels are equal to the ambient levels on the rest of your dialogue tracks. Also be sure to add crossfades carefully at the top and tail of your clips to ease in and out of the room tone clips.Just with this single step alone, your audio track will start to feel far smoother, as there will no longer be an absence of natural background noise when playing through the ADR segments. Here’s a quick video from Vimeo Film School that covers the basics of room tone:last_img read more

Mayawati to meet Sonia Rahul today

first_imgNEW DELHI: Mayawati will meet with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi on Monday in what is seen as a significant outreach after the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief carried out an acrimonious campaign that was unsparing of the Congress.The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister attacked the BJP and the Congress in the same breath throughout her campaign in the national election, for which she teamed up with old rival Samajwadi Party. But even as she left the Congress out of her gathbandhan in UP, Mayawati said all the votes of the alliance would go to the Congress in Amethi and Raebareli, the constituencies of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Mayawati’s meeting with the Congress top two is the latest in a series of meetings among opposition parties ahead of the results on Thursday, May 23. The three were last seen in public together when Janata Dal Secular leader HD Kumaraswamy took oath last year as chief minister of a coalition government with the Congress. Mayawati and Sonia Gandhi’s big smiles and forehead bump portrayed bonhomie that was not to be for long. The two parties failed to agree on seat sharing for the Madhya Pradesh state polls, and a furious Mayawati started clubbing the Congress along with the BJP as her top enemies. But now that the polls are over and talk revolves around numbers, Mayawati realizes that even if she wants the top post, no non-BJP coalition can come to power without Congress help. Meanwhile, continuing his efforts to unite opposition parties against the BJP ahead of Lok Sabha results, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday met Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Sharad Pawar and Sitaram Yechury, among other leaders. He had on Saturday also held talks with several opposition leaders, including Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav in the national capital and with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati in Lucknow. Naidu met Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Nationalist Congress Party chief Pawar for the second consecutive day on Sunday morning, followed by a meeting with Sonia Gandhi in the evening. He also held a separate meeting with CPI(M) general secretary Yechury and discussed the possibility of all opposition parties getting together. The TDP chief’s efforts are being seen as part of the opposition strategy to bring all the non-NDA parties together and form an alliance to keep the BJP out of power. Naidu’s meeting with Sonia Gandhi assumes significance as the latter held an internal meeting with top Congress leaders Saturday evening to assess the party’s process and strategy to stake claim for government formation incase of a hung verdict on May 23 when the results are announced. The Telugu Desam Party president has held several rounds of discussion with various opposition leaders, including TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee, AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal and CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury. Naidu’s TDP was part of the NDA, but quit the alliance a few months ago. The Congress and other opposition parties have exuded confidence of forming the next government.

Mens Basketball Ohio State searches for growth in trip to Spain

Ohio State junior guard C.J. Jackson (3) talks with head coach Chris Holtmann during a timeout in the first half of the game against Radford on Nov. 12. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for Design Chris Holtmann and his staff already had a trip for Spain planned. Before he left Butler, he and his staff were going to lead the Bulldogs on a 10-day trip abroad, facing professional-level competition as well as going through a multicultural experience. The Bulldogs did travel to Spain, but without Holtmann, who was hired to be the Ohio State men’s basketball coach in June 2017. However, that dream for Holtmann remained, and in his second season with the Buckeyes, his first full summer with the team, he will take the Ohio State men’s basketball team on a 10-day trip to Spain. For this group, a trip like this means much more than travelling to face professional-level talent and to see the sights. Ohio State will have seven new players, either freshman or transfers, on the roster going into the 2018-19 season. Senior guard C.J. Jackson feels like this trip has the potential to define the culture and the chemistry of this team moving forward. “I feel like it can bring us all together as a team,” Jackson said. “Especially with all of the new guys, that’s kind of the way we are looking at it, as a way to bond in a different setting that we are not used to.” Holtmann said Ohio State will be facing teams that are a collection of professional players from Spain, saying that when other programs have travelled overseas for preseason games, they’ve been met with stiff competition. However, when Holtmann asked other coaches who have taken their teams abroad if this kind of preparation and trip could give Ohio State an advantage heading into the regular season, the general consensus was one he didn’t expect: not necessarily. Yet for a team with som many pieces that have not played together, Holtmann believes a trial by fire will help the team prepare for the season. “When you have a group that is relatively new, it’s better, like we have it, it’s better because they really do spend concentrated time together and we get to learn more about them,” Holtmann said. “We will be put into some difficult game situations there because the competition there has been typically pretty good. So that will be good. We will be able to see how our guys respond to those situations.” With the trip starting at the beginning of August, the Ohio State basketball team is already on campus, going through practices and trying to get a feel for each other on the court.Jackson said these practices have been beneficial in teaching the new players how things are done at Ohio State. “It is no issue with any of them and they have been accepting to learning and we have been learning from them as well,” Jackson said. “They came in with an open mind to get better, so it’s always easy to work with teammates like that.” Holtmann knows this team is going to be different than last season. He wants to go into the season with an optimistic attitude, but knows there are challenges ahead for this team moving forward. “I think, perception wise, we will try to be real and try to hopefully reach the potential for this group,” Holtmann said. “We are so anxious to see what that is going to look like because we don’t know what it is going to look like.”  Right now, it’s all about preparing for this season. Holtmann views this trip as an opportunity for Ohio State to get a step ahead, to increase team chemistry before season practices even begin with a brand new group of players. “Listen, it’s good, it’s good for us to get some playing experience and we will need to be ready,” Holtmann said. “Hopefully a little more ready than even what we were last year.” read more
